Who do you think will get out of the group stage? Who will make it through to the quarter finals, semis, and the final?
As the competition goes on we can revisit and see how correct those predictions were.
As always, the results of first few games have made me question some of my assumptions I made before the comp started, e.g. the Netherlands not making it out of their group with Spain and Chile!
Forums > Living in Kunming > Monthly expenses in Kunming
I don't know, I don't really care, life is too short to count every kuai! I often marvel at how people get by on salaries below 4000. By saving money wherever they can I guess and earning favours from those better off than them? Rest assured, Kunming is much cheaper than central-ish Hangzhou. Minimum spend in HZ is 2000 per month, for a grotty old apartment with barely any natural light. For a nice 1 bedroom you'll need a minimum of 3000, for a nice 2 bedroom, 4000. My 2 bedroom apartment cost 5000 a month. So, next time you think rent is expensive, think of the poor buggers in HZ!

The next two along (just across the bridge) are both called The Bridge, though one of them told me she was changing the name of hers to avoid confusion.

185 is a lot but bear in mind that a 2ft pizza will feed 6 people (about 30RMB each). Maths tells us that pizza size increases exponentially with each inch, so a 24 inch pizza is a great deal bigger than a 23 inch pizza.
